    STOOL 60 AND E60 HELLA JONGERIUS RE-INTERPRETATION

    *quickship

    In the late 1920s, Aalto began to experiment with bending wood and collaborated with the furniture manufacturer Otto Korhonen on a number of innovative techniques. For the fabrication of the “L-leg”, Alvar Aalto developed a patented process for the bending of solid wood. Multiple vertical saw cuts are made in the end of a piece of wood a few millimeters apart. Thin strips of wood veneer are then inserted into these slits and glued. The method simplifies the actual bending process, but also increases the dimensional stability of the finished component. Patented in 1933, the L-leg quickly became a standard component of Aalto’s furniture designs.

    Alvar Aalto’s three-legged Stool 60 was the first product to incorporate the L-leg, designed in 1933 and representing the quintessence of functionalist furniture design. The simple, stackable and durable wooden stool stood for a new approach to furniture design – the use of wood instead of bent steel was revolutionary at the time. Thanks to its geometry, the stool can be stacked in a spiraling tower sculpture to save space.

    The Stool 60 embodies several of Artek’s values, including the importance of technology, art and ethics. Over the years, the stool has been produced with numerous wood stains, lacquers and upholstery fabrics. Since its introduction in 1933, several million units of Stool 60 and its four-legged version Stool E60 have been sold, making it one of the most cherished classics in the history of design.

    The Stool 60 and E60 are manufactured in 45 production steps in the Artek factory located in Turku, Finland. Like many of Aalto’s furniture designs, the stool projects a sense of relaxed familiarity, equally suitable at home, in public buildings or in educational facilities – as a seat, a table, storage or a display surface.
